I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

A Mile a Day for Jesus

"He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint."
Isaiah 40:29-31
 
 
 
I’m not Catholic but decided to participate in Lent this year. Instead of giving something up I committed to doing something every single day. My friend Stephanie actually had the idea.
We each committed to running at least a mile a day. I called it my mile for Jesus.

 

Some days it truly was only a mile, other days it was as many as 10 miles. But EVERY SINGLE DAY I managed to get my mile in.


Even when in New York and Vegas (miracle I tell ya). Pretty proud of myself for actually following through 100% on  this commitment. Often days I used the time to just reflect and be thankful for everything God has given me.

 

 

This Sunday is my first half marathon of the season and I am as unprepared as I have ever been but hopeful I can at least make it to the finish line!
